Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Separate Building
"Namoorook" circa 1895, is a beautifully restored homestead on 71 acres of farm land approximately 1.5 kms from Leongatha and 130kms from Melbourne. Adopting regenerative agricultural practices, Namoorook is a mixed farming operation with livestock, organic fruit orchard and vegetable gardens. We hope it will become an example of how food and farming systems can use the power of nature to increase biodiversity, enrich the soil, capture carbon, improve watersheds enhancing the entire ecosystem.

I'm having a quarter life crisis - recently leaving a office job and exploring how I can live differently. I'd love to learn more about permaculture first hand while helping some good people out along the way with their projects. I like the idea of escaping the rat race and living a more sustainable, low impact lifestyle (yes, not the most original story I know...). I'd like to use WWOOF to learn how others are achieving this, while getting some fresh air, making some friends and getting some exercise.

City/Town: W Tree
Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: Separate Building
I own 25 acres of steep, rocky land in W Tree in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. Over almost 35 years I have built (with considerable help) a lovely passive solar mudbrick house, planted crazy numbers of trees, gardened and raised my wonderful son. In many ways I have worked towards a dream from my early 20's to build a country life. My place is lovely. The vast expanse of bushland that surrounds it is beyond spectacular.   We can Sign off on your 2nd Year Visas as we were effected by the 2019-2020 Bushfires.

On the 17th of February the Federal Government announced an initiative allowing volunteers in Bushfire Disaster areas to qualify for second and third Working Holiday visas. Our property was effected and we need assistance with clean up, so we look forward to hearing from you.

WWOOF Australia has developed a Volunteer Bushfire Relief Form in consultation with Border Force, for registered WWOOFers to use for their visa extension application, as confirmation of the volunteer work they have done. Border Force have approved regular WWOOFing hours of 4 to 6 hours a day, maximum of 38 hours in any 7 days for this purpose. Registered WWOOF Australia Hosts need to fill this form in to confirm the TYPE of help they have had and the DATES the WWOOFer has stayed with them. Hosts must keep a copy of this form with their completed Guestbook page for each of these WWOOFers.

Please read full article prior to calling us about it. – Thank you

City/Town: Blackheath
Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
Looking for WWOOFers for February until end April. Extend your visa working on a bushfire affected property! Our place at Blackheath in the Blue Mountains of NSW was burnt in a bush fire on 22nd December 2019. We need help with land clearing of burnt areas so that we can restore our fences as well as taking the opportunity to remove weeds in the burnt areas where they have reappeared and planting out up to 1,000 canopy tree seedlings to restore the native habitat. We are on 3.2 Ha of which 80% has been burnt. Luckily the orchard, greenhouse and organic vegie garden was saved, so we need help with preparing the spring garden and winter harvest, in addition to the restoration work. We are dedicated permaculture followers and live according to sustainability principles. We have recently taken over a dilapidated property surrounded by bush, although the house is in good condition. We have cleared the orchard and Vegie area and have Planted a Permaculture garden. However there is still a lot to be done. Under our guidance, weeds and undergrowth need to be cleared, compost, wood bins managed and our greenhouse attended to, as well as continuing to plant out the herb and vegetable garden. Other tasks include clearing the bushland of weeds, preparing new garden beds and building a pergola for kiwi fruit vines. We need people who are strong, with some landscape gardening experience. Accomodation for 1, 2 or 3 close friends in a separate wing of our home with its own kitchen and bathroom and separate entry - would suit a couple or single person. Shared meals each evening. or Food provided to prepare your own breakfast and lunch. Mixed diet. Vegetarians catered for. No children. No smoking on property. Initial stay 6-10 days, longer stays negotiable. Prefer min 2 week stays.

Small Bio-dynamic property in beautiful artistic Deloraine, living & gardening for food & beauty in harmony with nature. Large vegetable garden, orchard, herbs, flowers, hothouse, geese, beekeeping with natural warre beehives, solar, sustainable building projects & maintenance, artistic projects & a magical rescue greyhound dog. Good place to learn about Bio-dynamics. Seasonal & joyful work: gardening, harvesting, preserving, fermenting, artistic projects, building and home maintenance. I am a therapeutic dance teacher & work with arts & creativity.  I enjoy dance, meditation, bushwalking & creativity. WWOOFers welcome to join in on these activities. Accommodation for 1-2 in cosy barn or in the house. Shared meals, meat & vegetarian. No children. No smoking on property. Longer stays after initial stay.  2 min walk into beautiful town & walks by the river that has platypus. I think the best qualification you can learn as a gardener is how to listen, attuning to your environment, taking time.  What is the earth, this flower, this piece of soil telling me?  & how can I respond to care for this earth/nature/creature from that listening. I'm passionate about nature & our environment & keep learning how to live more simply on this earth.  I love my work with arts, creativity, dance & meditation, inspiring people to live well & live their best lives. Happy to host WWOOFers who are working or studying remotely, I like long term WWOOFers so if you are looking for a home in a beautiful community & some work alongside your work or study,  please be in contact. I prefer initial contact via message/email. Look forward to hear from you, Stephanie

Work may include harvesting, food collection, composting, mulching, hay carting, weeding, fencing, planting, food preservation.  Sometimes there is some work caring for horses: often all the work is in the garden and paddock maintenance, as the horses are mainly looked after by their owners.

We eat a healthy, sustainable diet.  Bron is vegan and while Ray eats everything, many meals are vegan or vegetarian.  Vegetarians & vegans catered for.  No children, no smoking, all stays negotiable on application.

City/Town: Upper Tenthill
Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: Separate Building
Claire and Brian have retired to a bush block, a little less than 100 acres in the Lockyer Valley in Queensland. We have owned and lived on the property between working away for about 20 years. Now we want to continue to work on restoration and regeneration of the land. Claire is a beekeeper and potter and Brian, a retired engineer, is developing a small goat herd to assist with weed management on the property. We are interested in sustainable living, organic and biodynamic practices, but are very much beginners in the field. Brian is developing fencing, shelter and watering points etc for the animals & sustainable irrigation for plants and trees. Claire is developing a compost system, a rose (for essential oils) and herb garden and plantings in the apiary for the bees. As we have relocated to this section of the property the pottery and gardens are being re-established, so there is a lot of digging, weeding and planting to assist with. We do not require hands-on help with the bees, but assistance constructing supers, frames and extracting honey and processing honeycomb will be appreciated. We work to a weekly and seasonal timetable and would need help for 5 hours per day three days per week. We have an Air BnB cottage on the property and WWOOFers would be accommodated in this, all meals, internet, electricity, water etc included. We envisage a couple, with no children or pets. There is no public transport. We are a 15 minute drive from town so WWOOFers would need a car. We have one meat meal, one chicken meal and one fish meal per week. Breakfast, lunch and other dinners are vegetarian. For health reasons we do not smoke, nor can permit smoking on the property. Illegal drug taking will not be countenanced.
